The kingdom has suffered from the policies and practises of the Iranian regime and its proxies.

Saudi Arabia on Wednesday urged Iran to abandon an expansionist ideology that has 'harmed' its own people.

The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia, struck a defiant note against the kingdom's enemies, saying that missile and drone strikes it blames on Iran had not halted development.

"The kingdom has suffered from the policies and practises of the Iranian regime and its proxies," King Salman said, reiterating that Riyadh does not seek war but is "ready to defend its people".

In an annual address to the appointed Shura Council, he called again on the international community to stop Tehran's nuclear and ballistic missile programmes and halt regional intervention, saying it was time to stop the "chaos and destruction" generated by Iran.

He said the kingdom seeks a political settlement in Yemen.
